Banana Cornmeal Pancakes, Yum!

A simple box of corn muffin mix can make a very yummy breakfast! Yes, the mix can be combined with Egg Whites and Soy Milk for great tasting Corn Muffins. Better yet, using the same brand of corn muffin mix (Jiffy) that my mom used when I was growing up some mighty fine Banana Cornmeal Pancakes were on our Breakfast table this morning!

Yes, I did say Banana. In the past I’ve shared that Bananas are not my favorite fruit, but I try to eat one every day. It is that Potassium thing - trying to stay healthy.  :)  There are always at least three in our fruit bowl!

On the side of the Jiffy Corn Muffin mix box there are directions for the Pancake version of my “comfort food”. I used Egg Whites, Soy Milk, Olive Oil and added ¼ tsp. Cinnamon to the batter. This morning my red griddle was heating up and two Bananas were thinly sliced. Three or four slices were placed on each pancake while it was cooking. Quickly and without much fuss Breakfast was ready!

Extras? Oh, yes! After they cooled they were packaged and stored in the freezer.

Do you add Bananas to Pancakes?

Mmmmm. You can't go wrong with those ingredients. I'd smear real butter all over mine. :)

These sound great. I've always used this corn meal mix but only for muffins. I will be trying this for sure. Thanks :>)
